AR Murugadoss’ films always have a comedy actor who constantly explains the move of the protagonist. If Sathyan and Sathish played Vijay’s friend in Thuppakki and Kaththi respectively, it looks like Yogi Babu will be seen playing a similar role in Thalapathy 62. Yogi Babu was last seen playing a brief role with Vijay in Mersal but the comedian is said to have got a much bigger character in Thalapathy 62.
Keerthy Suresh is said to be the front-runner to play the female lead in Thalapathy 62 and talks are on with AR Rahman to compose music. AR Murugadoss is also auditioning newcomers to play important roles in the film along with established actors.
To be produced by Sun Pictures, Girish Gangadharan of Angamaly Diaries will be cranking the camera for the film and Sreekar Prasad will take care of the cuts.
Thalapathy 62 will start rolling from January 2018.
